The answer is simple.

A simply brilliant marketing strategy that makes people THINK they need the latest Apple product and nothing else will do the job so well.

In the 50s it was called brainwashing.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if its in a caravan!) I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I stopped at a 4s. They are fantastic phones (I got all mine free) but I fail to see since that model apart from them getting bigger any further advantages that warrant the expense.

iPhones cost 370 dollars to make and are sold at 1000 dollars....giving the company Apple 70% of it's overall gross profit!

I don't have numbers for Android phones, but you can get a pretty good one for around $100-150, so the leading brands are raking it in too, I saw a Huawei ad on TV last night.

I have a iPhone 5s its about 3 years old, it just works and does everything Ive wanted it to do. I bought a new iPad recently and iPhone and iPad just linked to each other. No drama or lost tempers, it just did it.
Previously in three years Ive had three android phones and four android pads. They have all stopped responding or got so slow as to be useless.
Apple stuff,IMO, are good, bloody good!

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

Kev, that link is for the "cheap" version the lite, the one that all the adverts push is the "pro" which is priced circa 900!

A 800 phone or whatever they are is just not practical on a day to day basis out at work etc. Security risk, damage risk, loss risk. Im always dropping mine or I leave it lying around in offices and now they are massive, tablet size.

What will an 800 phone do that my crappy 4s wont?
